PRICES OF PINES
Says The Advertiser (Honolu
lu) ot last Wednesday:
Cabled advices fro in Chicago
yesterday announced a further cut
from S3. 00 on 2'j pound extra
canned pineapples of five per cent
plus two and a half per cent for
cash. This makes yesterday's net
cash price $2.97875 per case. As
suming that the average cost of
production i about $2.25 per case
f. o. b., Honolulu, and that the
freight rate from Honolulu to
Chicago is about 20 cents per case,
in carload lots, this leaves onlv
(32's cents per case margin to cover
insurance, brokerage, commissions
and all other charges.
If this new cut in prices be-ins'
I to move the estimated surplus of
upwards ot two hundred thousand
cases of 1913 pack now remaining
in original hands there will un
doubtedly be a rise in values when
the new crop enters the market,
or if the general trade conditions
in Europe and on the mainland
show marked improvement. It is
believed that the unsatisfactory
condition of the eastern money
markets and the necessity for im
mediate realizations may have
something to do with the further
price reductions made yesterday.

ON SUGAR fiRKET
Willett & Grav, the recognized
authority on sugar, had the follow
ing to sav on the condition of the
market, in their last letter:
It is a significant fact that gro
cers in towns within twenty miles
of New York are now selling Gran
ulated sugar to the family at 3 1-2
lbs. for 14 cents (4c per lb,) This
is certainly about one cent a
pound lower than sugar is selling
to anv other American families in
the whole world except Great Hri
ain It would seem that there is no
reason for a change in present du
ties on sugar to a flee dutv basis,
at a loss of revenues to the United
States Treasury, so easily collected
and without a sense of loss to the
consumers of sugar.
Jobbers being well supplied with
stocks of refined to draw from pre
vious contracts, the business of the

has been light.
The only change of quotations
since the close last week is the ad
vance of the Warner to 3.85c. less
2 per cent, the same as now quoted
by the American and Howell. The
Arbuckle continues to take orders
at 3.75c. less 2 per cent and the
Federal at 3.80c. less 1 per cent
trade discount and 2 per cent re
gular. The Federal has issued a state
ment to their customers explaining
why it has changed its selling
terms by giving buyers 1 oer cent
extra trade discount. Thev believe
it helps customeis to obtain a bet
ter profit in handling their sugar,
The maintenance of as great a
reduction in price as 10 cents per
100 pounds below the larger refin
ers seems to place the selling to
the basis of the domestic beet su
gars for pure standard cane sugar
to the ail vantage only of tne con
sumers. Arbuckle announces a concession
of 10 cents per 100 pounds on soft
sugars, Nos. 11 to 15 inclusive, in
